Minnesota Twins rookies forced to dress up like prisoners for hazing ritual (pics)

An annual rite of fall, the rookie hazing ritual of teams forcing the young kids to don ridiculous costumes or outfits has been occurring throughout the major leagues of late. And on Thursday, it was time for the contingent of bright-eyed, big league neophytes on the Minnesota Twins roster to take their turn. Twins reliever [...]

Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe hits homer, doesn’t realize it, starts trotting off field (video)

We’ve been a little Minnesota-heavy here at the Sportress this Friday morning — blame the Blatant Homerism — but even with that in mind, I am reluctant to pass on passing along the funny thing that happened during the Minnesota Twins-Cleveland Indians tilt at Progressive Field on Thursday afternoon in a get-away-day game. In the [...]

Vasquez, Twins aim for sweep of Indians

One bright spot during the Minnesota Twins' dismal season might be how well they've played against the Cleveland Indians. The Twins look to complete a three-game sweep with a sixth consecutive win over the Indians on Thursday at Progressive Field.

Willingham Sends Tribe to the Basement..But Hey, Pronk is Back!

Every time Josh Willingham sees Wahoo Red, White, and Blue his eyes light up like a kid on Christmas morning. Every time Josh Willingham delivers against the Wahoo Red, White, and Blue, GM Chris Antonetti must want to throw up. I am not saying the decision made by the Tribe’s embattled front office captain was the one that changed the entire course of the season, but it certainly...

Mauer quietly inches up AL batting leaderboard

Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer seems to have launched a stealth campaign for his fourth American League batting title.

Twins plan to play hard with just pride at stake

The Minnesota Twins have only pride at stake in their series against the Detroit Tigers. While Detroit is trying to catch Chicago in the AL Central, the Twins will wake up Saturday at least 19 games behind the White Sox. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, though, expects his team's best effort as it plays out the string. ''Out of respect for the game, you go out and give...

Twins ready to play some meaningful games

For most of the past decade, the Minnesota Twins were playing big games in September. They won six division titles from 2002-10, and when they weren't winning them, they were in the race, even losing a one-game playoff to the Chicago White Sox in 2008.
